I've tried to build mate-1.7.90 on a clean Slackware64-14.1. Everything went very smooth and works very well. Re-arranged mate-build-extra.sh really did the trick.

Feel almost bored by everything working so well... Kind a slackly I guess

Thanks for confirming
I don't change the order in mate-build-base since i guess everything is already working there

I have had some problems to run mate-build-base.sh on x86-64 with alienbob's multilib installed. I tried to rename /usr/lib but then somewhere /usr/lib/libGL.la could not be found. Finally I linked /usr/lib64 with /usr/lib. I hope that all this will work when I restore /usr/lib.

Honestly, i don't have multilib VM on my system, so i can't give much support on it
It is more work on supporting multilib and it's not the official architecture from Slackware

But theoritically multilib should work as well since all of the packages can be properly built on x86/x86_64

I will try to install a new VM with multilib this weekend and see if i can add more support on multilib *no guarantees though*

The only problem with multilib is during compilation. After that, everything works well.

but linking /usr/lib64 to /usr/lib *could* potentially create problems for other package

I have used all the themes that used to give me problems, including the other ones. No issues at all.

I had the same issue with the sticky notes, even with the latest scripts. However, I think I figured out the problem. It was not the program itself, but the icon theme. Once I rebooted, everything was working fine.

Did you build it when you are on MATE desktop?
Before i tried to rebuilt, i logout to konsole and remove all mate packages including local config in .config, .cache, and .local
Well, it's a VM, so i don't have data there

After all packages gets installed, i don't need to reboot to see the sticky notes on the list of applets

Anyway, it's good to know that it's not a persistent bug....

I build all the packages on a clean virtual machine. I wonder if running:
Code:
/usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache
instead of rebooting would do the trick? I may try that instead next time.

I think i missed that one on mate-icon-theme, so adding it to master branch now
Although it will be executed when you installed mate-icon-theme-faenza, but adding it to mate-icon-theme will give no harm

Thanks stormtracknole

For those insterested if Mate-1.7.90 will build and work on Slackware-14.0 I can confirm that it will. Just built one for my little Thinkpad X41 (which is running Slackware-14.0), and its running great! Much faster than Xfce4!

Howerver, prior running mate-build scripts, you will need to install dconf, itstool, libsecret and older versions of pygobject3, libsigc++, glibmm, cairomm, pangomm, atkmm from SBo(14.0).

Now, there are newer versions of pygobject3, libsigc++, glibmm, cairomm, pangomm, atkmm in mate-build-extra.sh. So you will have to edit this file and remove entries for these as they will not build on slackware-14.0.

There is also a known issue in Slackware-14.0, that /usr/bin/xdg-open script does not recognize mate desktop environment. You have to apply patch. More info in this thread

I have successfully done upgrade Mate 1.8 RC to Slackware 14.1, to my Dell Mini netbook 1018.
So far, so good.

New Mate is very fast.
